The project investigates the material transmission of music theory texts around 1500. The text media, manuscripts and some early prints, will be analysed with regard to their arrangement of content, their material configuration, and the contexts they were used in. Their functions, as they can be reconstructed from the material properties, have to be correlated with their users (authors, teachers, learners), in order to analyse the pragmatics of knowledge transfer in this discipline.
